The future finally looks bright for the PS Vita

After a pretty lackluster first 17 months for the PS Vita in America and Europe, Joe Thomas takes a look at whether the future of the console looks any brighter. (Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, Demon Gaze, Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster: Collector’s Edition, PS Vita, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day")

Yeah we have three really nice pieces of software coming to the Vita. However, look beyond October, what is there after that? Practically nothing. Sony said at E3 they would have 80 something games coming out before the end of the year. WHERE ARE THEY and what are they? Show us something! Show us games that will have us excited about 2014! They better rock it at Gamescom.

P.S. Really fucking excited for Tearaway
joe_thomas25  +   951d ago | Well said
Gamescom is going to be a real test for Sony, both for the Vita and the PS4. I'm just hoping they'll really pull it out of the bag.
bothebo  +   951d ago
I'm not so worried about the PS4. They've effectively already won the console war in Japan with an exclusive FF and KH3 which is only coming out for Xbox 1 and PS4 not the Wii U. Even with hard hitting software in Japan Nintendo still hasn't done well there other than the 3DS. Japan is Sony's.

America will be a struggle. Sony already won a lot of people over at E3. Largely the hardcore who got pissed at MS and decided they wanted a system for gamers and not a media hub. However, I find it hard to believe that Sony will win America because it is MS home turf.

Europe should be interesting. Europe is generally pretty divided but as of late the PS3 has been dominating. I'm also enthusiastic for Sony in Europe because SCEE is by far the best and most competent region with some of Sony's best 1st party developers.

Anyway, I really think they should focus on the Vita. Since the PS4 is so easy to develop for why should they continue to focus company assets on making games for it? Hopefully 3rd party support will be enough to allow them to invest more resources in the Vita.

not with that comfort /:
IMightBeRetarded  +   951d ago
I've never played a first person shooter shooter (or possibly a frames per second shooter), but a good first person shooter would be killzone mercenary.
Snookies12  +   951d ago
@bullymangLer - The Vita feels great in the hands. I'm sure some people's hands won't quite mesh with it, but that's true for any handheld... Loved the DS, hated the feeling of the DS Lite for example.
BattleAxe  +   951d ago
I've been wanting to get a Vita, but the only games that I am really interested in are Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Killzone: Mercenary. They're going to have to show more support for AAA portable games before I take the plunge.
mcstorm  +   951d ago
I have been really unimpressed with the psv. I got mine on day one but there has been a reel lack of games I want for the psv and also some of the games I was really interested in were a let down like mnr with no mp.

Due to life changes I've no longer got time to play games like I have done in the past and I've had to pick between the psv and 3ds and decided to keep my 3ds as looking at what a coming out over the next few months the 3ds has a better line up. It is a real shame the psv is not getting the love it should by Sony as the hardware is amazing but at this moment in time it is really lacking in software. I hope Sony can get there act together with the psv as it could go down as one of the classic gaming Systems.
NumOnePS3FanBoy  +   950d ago
@BattleAxe If you haven't played Gravity Rush "Daze" TRY IT. It is a PSVita gem. And there's plenty of other great games outhere.
Saigon  +   950d ago
I think the part that was missed in this article was remote play and the functions that Sony is planning to apply such as mandatory that devs develop PS4 and Vita in tandem.What Sony is trying to apply is if you purchase a game on Vita you can play it on both consoles and vice-a-versa. This in my opinion will take vita a little further, because of this I am thinking of purchasing a vita.
malokevi  +   950d ago
Of course it is. VITA is the only companion device for the PS4. They are essentially cramming it down your throat if you want the full experience.

Some people don't like to admit it, but having that companion touch/remote screen is practically an essential feature. Already I use Smartglass about as much as I use my controller.

People give MS crap for a lack of options, but Smartglass has struck the perfect balance. I wonder if Sony will come up with an app for android/iOS devices? I don't see why not (except to spur Vita sales... which is perfectly understandable, considering it has struggled to sell)
bicfitness  +   951d ago
In case you haven't noticed, the turnaround for Vita titles from inception to release is about one year max; and that's for the AAA stuff. Middle tier games take about 6-8 months from announcement to localization and release. The smaller stuff gets released at times without warning. I wouldn't be worried about Vita software. I'm a JRPG nut, so the release slate looks excellent as far as I'm concerned.
bothebo  +   951d ago
One year max for a AAA Vita title? You can't be serious. I can tell you for a fact that Soul Sacrifice took around two years to develop.

Which means, that whatever AAA title is revealed at Gamescom will probably be released for the next holiday...

I would really want have some for the first quarter of 2014. There is just nothing relevant after KZ Mercenary.

"Sony said at E3 they would have 80 something games coming out before the end of the year."
Well it's 5 months to go so chill the hell down and wait for Gamescom, TGS and daily news man, more will come, it's not like they have to show us immedially after they annouce the games.
TwilightSparkle  +   951d ago
your right I just hope 70 of those 80 games arent indies, tgs is for japanese games cause last they announce a bunch of vita games but they were japan only so far so dont get your hopes up

God eater 2, ps4 remote play, Phantasy Star online 2, Freedom Wars and the rpg in tge article.
demonsoul  +   951d ago
Will post these again for the 3rd time.

And So on etc.
If You would sum up all the games of Vita, There is an average of 2 to 3 games per month for its Library which is not bad as people would want it to be. Developing Games for Vita is Much harder and longer than the 3ds.

"Upcoming Confirmed"

Killzone: Mercenary - September 9 2013/West

Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD - 4th Quarter/West

Valhalla Knights 3

Awhile ago at the Anime Expo 3 games are announced for the Vita.2 coming from NIS.

And So on etc.

+ Indies, PS1, PSP Library of Games.
+ Not Yet Localized Games from Japan.

WTF! These People are talking about that Vita Has no games? LOL! No game Your Asses. You just need to Work to earn Money for you to purchase these games.

As What Sony Have said,
"We will talk about Vita later these Year"

"Gamescon is all about Vita"

Alot of those games are great but the problem with your list is that alot of those games, or variations there of,
are also available on/has been played to death, on the Vita's big brother PS3.

As a personal example I Do not have an appetite for the following game series right now, on any platform:

Assassins Creed
Mortal Kombat
Ninja Gaiden
Ultimate Marvel Vs _____
Street Fighter OR Tekken
Dead Or Alive
Need For Speed

All those titles by themselves are good games, im just in the mood for something else.

I could careless about the Vita. Handhelds for a much maturer audience have proven to be a failure time and time again. And it's not only that, the cost of Vita and memory cards are ridiculous, and little to no support for games.
Sony should devote their focus on the PS4, and slowly end this Vita stuff.
The more they focus on the Vita-failure, the less focus the PS4 will be getting.

Vita owner here. I'm going to be playing mine all day today over my ps3 games.

i had your opinion until I started playing the games.

soul sacrifice, wipeout 2048, uncharted, lumines, escape plan, hotline miami, and ps1/ps2/psp classics on a hanheld. its a fantastic device that complements the ps4 since you have crossplay for a ton of games.

i highly highly recommend picking up the hori screen protector and then the 5$ grip off new egg. Pretty key accessories. Also either a 16gb or 32 gb memory card.

Well, i gues you're right but most of these ports are really nice, and I don't consider The Walking Dead a port, because it's very recent, its just coming out late for the vita..
SonyPS4  +   951d ago
It needs games of its own, ports are great when they play well, but Jak Collection is a poor example of a port worth buying. Games designed for the Vita from the ground up is what this system needs.
Baylex  +   950d ago
It's a poor example to you, you see, there will always be people that end up buying this games, like me. Allright, it may not be enough to push the system sales up, but at least it keeps me distracted with my vita. At least that's something.

And of course that I agree with you on the ground up games!! Killzone it's gonna be a hell of a title on the vita!! And I hope more companies can see the good oportunity to create new games, just like taking the momentum of this game to announce new ones.
xxPillsxx  +   950d ago
Who doesn't like good ports like GTA? Even if Vita only gets good or bad exclusives I will still be sad if there's no GTA, GOOD resistance, GOOD COD, GOOD Battlefield, clearly the Vita can take open world as Need for Speed Most Wanted is a good example and Gravity Rush and more so GTA and the rest shouldn't be hard and I'm fine with a bit downgraded graphics too. So in the end we need half exclusives and half GOOD ports, and we're all happy!

Yeah but if you're not a fan of Japanese titles then there is still not too much reason to buy in..all I want on this list is Killzone and Tearaway
TheDivine  +   951d ago
That's the saddest thing of ever seen. Bunch of f2p card games and Japanese novels of which 2 or 3 may release in the US.

Come on I'm a huge sony fan and il admit the vita is a flop not because it sucks but because Sony isn't supporting it. They have two upcoming games, Tearaway and KZ. There isn't any good third party support either. The 3ds get DQ, MH, RE, SMT, and every other ip. Vita gets all that crap you listed like novel for girls, novel game, simulator exc. At e3 the biggest game expo on the planet they announced a port of a ps2 game, port of flower, and dlc for Walking Dead that every other platform gets. No new games, not a one. Sony has abandoned the vita point blank.

It's bad when the platform maker says they won't support THEIR OWN FU**ING PLATFORM UNTIL SALES PICK UP. It's their job to make us want to buy it and drive sales but even Sony won't waste time making vita games because its a dead platform.
tiffac008  +   951d ago
Sony made a mistake with their strategy by focusing on making the Vita western centric. They forgot that the PSP was successful because it was the bastion of niche games, especially JRPGs and for some reason they keep supporting the PSP in Japan and not giving incentives to 3rd party developers to put the games exclusively on the Vita.

They also need to help localize the Japanese games with an English speaking market. I mean Tales of Hearts and Innocence maybe ports but those games where never localized even when they appeared on the DS. Tales fans (like myself) would be happy campers and could lead to "buy ins" and consumer confidence with well known titles coming out of Japan.

I wouldn't say it's very bright. It has some good looking games, Killzone and others but they are few and far between and it gets pretty bad third party support esspecially if you aren't into certain genres. Considering it sold like 3.5 million in it's first year and is on track to sell a little bit more than half of that in its 2nd year I wouldn't say things "are bright" seeing as once this year concludes pretty much every third party will jump ship like they are leaving the Wii U right now, unless of course something turns around in the sales department.

strifeblade  +   951d ago
those games take a lot of money to make- for an install base of less than 5 million, its not gonna happen.
What devs love to do is make all those games you listed on ps3 (similar in specs and since there is an 80 million install base) and make a weaker vita port to make a little bit extra.

That explains the lack of original games on vita- no install base while 4ds gets tons of support since the weaker 3ds hardware will not allow ports of 360/wii u/ps3 games and therefore devs need to be more creative in the way they make the game and their and keep a low budget while still pumping out quality 3ds games.

I'll buy a Vita if it ever truly integrates with the PS3/4. Until then...

The vita will survive at $99.

For $ 199.99 MSRP for a bundle (game + 4GB card) in 2014, it's very likely to do OK.

At least that's what I am hoping for.

There is this offer where I live: PSV + Game + 4GB card = 199€

It's an extremely good offer but it's too bad it's only this week.

The Vita at gamescon will continue to get more small games sadly :(

I really hope Sony makes some of their first party studios to make big games for the Vita exclusively.

Remote Play of all PS4 games will be a big part of the Vita's future.

I didn't buy my vita to be a very expensive controller to be used with the ps4.
motherboop  +   950d ago
Not so much about it being a controller. Consider it more about continuing your console experience while on the go. I believe that Vita owners will see the value in this once the PS4 has hit in full stride. Give it a little time to marinate before judging it's potential!

yeah it doesn't look too good. There are no clear system sellers
